“Do Not Give Sri Lanka More Time” – TNA MPs Tell UN

Some 11 MPs representing the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) has appealed to the United Nations against granting an extension of time to the Sri Lankan government to implement the 2015 resolutions.

Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein – The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

The MPs have signed the appeal to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), requesting the UNHRC to not give the Sri Lankan government an extension to implement the resolutions, which was to be implemented by this month.

The signatories include; S. Sritharan, S. Adaikalanathan, Siva Mohan, Dharmalingam Sitharthan, S. Yogeswaran, Shanthi Kantharaja, Sivasakthi Ananthan, G. Srinesen, Charles Nirmelanathan, S. Viyalanderen, and K. Kodeeswaran have signed the petition.

In the appeal, the signatories have pointed out that even though the Sri Lankan government voluntarily signed the resolution and committed to fully implement the resolutions as required by March 2017, no progress have been made on the declaration despite an initial commitment by the government,

“Extensions and grace periods have been given already, but no progress has been made on any front,” the appeal claimed.

The signatories have said that granting a further extension will allow the Sri Lankan government to continue to commit abuses against Tamils.

In February, Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera announced that his government will seek more time from the UNHRC to probe war crimes, on grounds that it was taking time to set up the necessary judiciary mechanisms to probe alleged war crimes committed during the final phase of the war which ended in 2009.

      RE: “Do Not Give Sri Lanka More Time” – TNA MPs Tell UN

      The Para-Tamil TNA MPs do have a opint, but the reason the Para-Sinhala dominated “Good Governance” needs more time is because their IS’s are low, and the average is 79.

      So, give them another year, and tell them if not ready by then, Identify 10 War Criminals you would like to prosecute based on current evidence.

      This has become an annul distraction, for everybody.

      The Sri Lankan Tamils had eliminated their own leaders and intellectuals far more than any other race in Asia. Have they made any progress before pointing their finger at the government? Do you see evolution in Tamils who conducted the Asia’s longest brutal civil war for more than three decades? Do you see evolution in Tamils who assassinated far more leaders and intellectuals than any other terrorist organization in the world? The obvious answer is no.

        Do you agree that the govt has been in a struggle not being able to do the little towards serving promised justice, just because former idiotic leader makes every effort to rabble rouse and even go for an another 83 July style riots. ?

        Current govt has fearsnot to go radically against former crooks just because they can animate the vulnerable for their sake.

        Even if they mastered high profile frauds, there the current men have to tolerate …. just go with some investigations being carried out by FCID.

        If I were president I would do anything and everything to reveal who the real high profile fraudsteers are, no matter even party would have been divided into pieces.

        You cant please everyone. If SLFP is reached to all ends, the leaders have to reveal about them.
        Just stay to protect wrong parties can CAUSE loose everything.

            The reason such terrorists came up were due to the pressure being held on the minorities fo rsuch a long time -latter is the fact. So, there, we have to see it let alone today, that those who perpectrated crimes should be subjected to investigations. Basta.

            Not only tamil terrorists, our men ran riots in 83 and 89 were all terrorists to my eye. Extremists of all various forms should be subjected to face it if they did it. No matter if they had higher positions, were part of army., navy, airforce, they should be investigated. basta.

    TNA and others try to put the whole blame on killing Sinhalese, Muslims, Tamils and even some foreigners on Pirahabaran and let others who supported and backed him and still living escape. OK, if there should be War Crimes investigation bring all others, starting from Adele Balasingham, Rudrakumaran, Emmanual, Surendiran et al and our own TNA comrades to face it.
    All these people who were behind Pirahabaran encouraging him to engage in massacres and destroy national assets are now trying to be saints and punish the armed forces for destroying the LTTE.

      B S Perera:

      Your lament shows the kind of silly donkey you are. No one faults SL for waging the war against the LTTE. In fact, many countries actively supported it but the SL regime used that as an excuse to commit what has been alleged as possible war crimes and crimes against humanity. There are caveats on how a war is to be conducted and breaches may land parties in trouble. In this case, the indiscriminate and without due regard to civilian lives SL is alleged to have been responsible for the loss of thousands of civilian lives. The LTTE is also in the dock for holding the civilians as human shields.

      So, use the donkey’s long ears to listen to what the issues on hand are instead of rambling away.

          There is a lot of movement from South to North lately.

          Descendants of Kallathonies have been relocating to north, some of them are doing well after taking up trading in Kerala Gancha.

          Police has no authority over them. The Kallthonies seem to have close relation with powerful Kallathonies in south.

          Who the upper caste Kandyan Sinhalese , half the so called low country Sinhalese Govigamma. 100% of the Sinhalese Karawa , Salagamma, Durawa, Hunu ,Hali, Berewa, etc. No wonder the present day Sinhalese share a 70% DNA with South Indian Tamils. Whereas the Sri Lankan Tamils only 14%. You can lies and post untruths but DNA never lies. There was a Sinhalese caste called Demalagetara that proudly proclaimed its Tamil origin. These people were descended from Tamil soldiers and mercenaries. Although they called themselves Sinhalese Buddhists they were proud of their Tamil origin and were not afraid to proclaim it. Over the years they got assimilated into the Govigamma identity.
          DNA also proves that Sri Lankan Tamils share a 55% DNA with the original Sinhalese not with the largely South Indian origin population that are now masquerading as Sinhalese and creating all this problems. Which means the ancestors of the Sri Lankan Tamils and the original Sinhalese were the Dravidian semi Tamil speaking Naga and Yakka and other tribes. It is not the Sri Lankan Tamils but the Sinhalese who assimilated most immigrants from India. DNA also has proved there is more direct Bengali contribution to the Sri Lankan Tamil gene pool 28% than the 24% gene DNA that modern Sinhalese have in common with the Bengali.
          Please read and research before posting racist garbage.

May be in the Sinhalese language which is a mongrel language a mixture of Tamil (40%) and the rest Sanskrit /Pali/Prakrit and everything else. What happens when you see a Sinhalese and a Cobra? After the average Sinhalese is 70% Tamil in DNA. Kill 70% of the Sinhalese or torture and maim them?

          why did not the Sinhala government deport the illegal immigrants to Nigeria, USA, Denmark or wherever they came from? Typical incompetency by Sinhalese. let the Tamils rule the country and they will deport the illegal immigrants to countries where they have citizenship.

      Back your argument with numbers Jimmy boy. Yes, only 40% of the total Tamil population live under Nothern Provincial Council (Source: 2012 census). Interesting!!! This is the reason behind NPC and EPC amalgamation (makes it 76%). But it gets more interesting, only 37% of total population in EPC are Tamils (oops!). So they bring in the concept “Tamil Speaking Minority”, instead of Tamils. That kinda worked until LTTE started kicking the butts of Muslims in NPC and EPC. Stuuupiddd!!! You’d think.

        Actually it is 40% and this is because of large scale ethnic cleansing of Tamils by the Sinhalese and the Muslims, in the past 30years. Especially in the strategic Trincomalee district that had a Tamil majority even in the 1970s and sent two Tamil MPS and one Muslim MP. The southern Amparai disctrict also so a lot of ethnic cleansing of Tamils and now it has started in the eastern heart land Batticaloa. Most of the refugees languishing in India are from the east.
        Sinhalese who were only 4.5% in the east now are around 25% . Tamils who were 65% in the east now reduced to 40% within a span of 60 Years. How did this happen in 60 Years. Large scale ethnic cleansing of Tamils and illegal settlement of Sinhalese and adding certain Sinhalese majority areas to the east and taking away many Tamil villages in the east and adding them to the North Central Province. Whom are you trying to fool you Sinhalese racist.
        The north and east is ancient Tamil land. Illegally using the Sinhalese led government state police armed forces to ethnically cleanse and chase out thousands of Tamils from the east and illegally settle thousands of Sinhalese to deliberately to change the demography of the east in the past 60 years will never justify ethnic cleansing . IT is a war crime.
        Look at the map of the east and north in the 1940 or early 1950s. Other than a few border villages, every place name town river hill is in Tamil nothing in Sinhalese or nothing Islamic. Now full of Sinhalese and Islamic/Arabic name -places Eg. Pattipalai Aru became Gal Oya. Kantalai no Kantale. Periya Villan Kulum literally translated to Sinhalese Maha Diwulu Weva., Villan Kulam first became Bullankulame( the family name of a aristocratic Kandyan family ) now it has become Divuluweva. However this Kandyan family still retains the Sinhalised version of the original Tamil name. Bulankulame. The most famous ethnic cleansing in the 19902 by the JR regime when 19 Tamil villages in the Manal Aru area were ethnically cleansed the this area renamed as Weli Oya and Sinhalese settled.

          What about Jaffna my friend? 60% reduction of Sinhala population 1981 to 2012. How did that happen? You don’t seem to know the meaning of the word ethnic cleansing (FYI, there is no border villages inside the borders of a country). You don’t seem to know the definition of half the words used in your post brother.

            What about Jaffna no ne chased the Sinhalese they just left. 60% reduction in the Sinhalese population!. First of all there were hardly any Sinhalese in Jaffna to begin with so where is the 60% reduction. Now hundreds of thousands of Sinhalese troops in the Jaffna district. Stealing land killing raping looting. Building Budda statues temples hotels in private lands. More than 2000% increase. Whom are you trying to fool. Stationing hundreds of thousands of Sinhalese only troops in the , stealing Tamil homes lands and farms, and building Buddhist temples where no one is Buddhist is is forcible Sinhalisation by force and stealth. Whom are you trying to fool you racist Lankaweb supporter.. Go and tell that to your South Indian origin Lanka web Karawa Queen Jenali Borukiyanage

              If you go back to history, it is recorded in history books and ( proved by archeological evidence) that jaffna was inhabited by Sinhalese. It was the Sangilians who chased away the Sinhalese and later Dutch brough South Indians and the Tamil population swelled in Jaffna.

    For the Buddha’s sake, Sri Lanka must. Otherwise we can’t tell the world that SL respects the Buddha.

    In the Noble Eightfold Path samyak-karmānta / sammā-kammanta is the fourth aspect says the practitioner should train oneself to be morally upright in one’s activities, not acting in ways that would be corrupt or bring harm to oneself or to others. In the Chinese and Pali Canon, it is explained as:

    And what is right action? Abstaining from taking life, from stealing, and from illicit sex [or sexual misconduct]. This is called right action.

    Buddha — Saccavibhanga Sutta[10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17]
    For the lay follower, the Cunda Kammaraputta Sutta elaborates:

    And how is one made pure in three ways by bodily action? There is the case where a certain person, abandoning the taking of life, abstains from the taking of life. He dwells with his… knife laid down, scrupulous, merciful, compassionate for the welfare of all living beings. Abandoning the taking of what is not given, he abstains from taking what is not given. He does not take, in the manner of a thief, things in a village or a wilderness that belong to others and have not been given by them.[18][19][20]

    UN organizations are in trouble due to changes in US and Europe’s politics. Therefore the TNA should not give them a hard time by suggesting impossible targets.
    I read a recent article and a lot of countries are concerned about the mischievous behavior of certain UN bodies and their chieftains. They and certain self appointed experts attached to these bodies who live on tax free $$$$$.$$ are interfering with the affairs of democratically elected governments and the Philippines has already warned the prince Al-Z to ‘shut up’ because he has been employed by member countries and not the other way around. This is a new trend and if it is the case, it is better for the TNA to focus more on domestic affairs (people’s poverty, health, education etc) rather than running after these UN and NGO men and women who create more issues than resolving them.

    Wonder whether Yahapalana Kanthale Sugar deal with the UK Diaspora has got anything to do for Sambandan and the Vella Kid Abraham to abstain?.

    UNP BASL Boss signed the contract to hand over 500 Acres of prime Land near the Kanthale Tank to the UK Investor.

    And Vellala Sambandan’s mates in Indian Sugar are going to build it.

    But the best part of the deal is the 51 percent of the shares of MG sugar does not belong to the Yahapalana Government until the Cane sugar is in Arpico Shelves in Colombo.

    How cool.

    Wonder what if the Diaspora investor changes his mind.

    He still has 500 Acres Prime Land to build Luxury Holiday pads for Suren Surendran and his BTF buddies to come over and fish Carp in Kanthale Tank.

    Instead of holidaying in the Homeland where Water is scarce and no shade to block UV.,

      By the way are you keeping an eye on exclusive Chinese Export Processing Zones in Mirigama, Godagama, Matara, and Eastern Province granted by the Clan long before 2015?

      Who owns those lands, the poor majority or the rich Chinese? The Chinese have built hotels in various parts of this island, mostly prime seafronts, some legal and some illegally acquired sea fronts?

      This is Chinese colonialism through back door. In about 50 years time future Sinhala/Buddhist minorities will blame the Tamil/Muslim minorities for enjoying the fruits of Chinese colonialism.

    K A Sumanasekera is suffering from Vellala caste phobia. He needs treatment. Since more than half the population is of Vellala caste, the majority of elected representatives belonged to the same caste. The same with Sinhalese. Unlike the Sinhalese, caste is not a factor when it comes to politics. No non-Govigama person could aspire to become party leaders. The only exception is R. Premadasa. Tamils who migrated during Portuguese and Dutch times have become Sinhalese. The Catholic Paravar of Puttalam, Negombo were brought from TN by Portuguese for their own security. They spoke Tamil till Archbishop Edmond Perris of Chilaw Diosce changed the medium of education from Tamil Sinhalese in 1933. The coastal Karava caste is 100% Tamil. So is the Salagama (cinnamon peelers) brought by Dutch. The Durava (toddy tappers) are also one time Tamils. This is why the Kandyan Sinhalese claimed that they are the true Sinhalese. The Asgiriya/Malwatta Buddhist chapters are caste based. No ordination for non-Govigama castes. The Amarapura chapter is dominated by Salagama caste. Once Colvin R de Silva (Salagama) admitted in parliament that he is no ashamed to say his ancestors are Tamils. ‘There are more than 4,000 Tamil words in the Sinhala vocabulary. If the Sinhala vocabulary is stripped of all the Tamil words there will be no Sinhala language. Tamils have had temporary kingdoms before remember Ellara (1st century BC), Sena Gutika (3rd century BC) and Tamil monarchs of post 13th century Sinhala people (Alakeswara, Buvanekabahu VI/Chempaka Perumal/Sapumal Kumaraya. The last 4 kings of Kandy were Tamils. Sri Vijaya Rajasinha (1739–1747) Kirti Sri Rajasinha (1747–1782) Sri Rajadhi Rajasinha (1782–1798)Sri Vikrama Rajasinha (1798–1815).

    One can observe as the state sponsored colonization accelerated the Tamil population started decreasing and the Sinhalese population started increasing proportionately. One of the last big colonization is Manal Aru renamed Weli Oya. A total of 13,288 Tamil families living in 42 villages for generations including Kokkulai Grama Sevakar Division (1516 Tamil families), Kokku –Thoduvai Grama Sevakar Division (3306 Tamil families), Vavunia North Grama Sevakar Division (1342 Tamil families), Other Divisions of Mullaitivu District including Naiyaru and Kumulamunai ( 2011 Tamil families) were asked to vacate their homes and farmlands within 48 hours on pain of eviction by force in case of default. This threat was issued by the army over the public address system.
